@Neyawn Yeah. ORN


Don’t think there should be a problem. All you may have is surge pricing at worst. 

You know this is so surreal to me. Happens every year. So long back we used to have cab sharing threads. The kaali peeli taxi days. 

I had a forum user  and a very hard working student come to see me blushingly after his selection. He was from the very second offline batch of ForumIAS academy. He was continually saying - Thank you so much multiple times. I was like yeah fine. ( He got under 20 rank.)

Then he says no sir thanks so much because of you I met my life partner. 

I was like what ? Was she also in the ForumIAS academy ?

No sir, she wasn’t. But she was in the cab sharing thread. We pooled the same vehicle and we are planning to get married later this year. IAS and IRS.

Anyway, you may not find a soulmate, but by all means you should get a cab :)

Is it advisable to see the centre beforehand?


If the centre is not too far away, I would suggest ki dekh aao centre ek dinn jaake.


Last year on prelims day, I wasn’t allowed to enter my centre because I reached the gates at 9:29 am. I left my home around 7:30 ie 1.5 to 2 hours before the exam time and my centre was just 20 minutes away from home, but despite of that I was not able to reach my centre on time because I was travelling to that place for the first time and my phone’s GPS failed me in telling the directions as to when to take left or right(I was riding bike with headphones and map on and I use an iPhone lmfao). Kehte hai na ki jab L lagne hotay hai toh poori kaaynaaat lagti hai tumhaare peeche L lagaaane).


That was my major learning last year and hence I would suggest that if the centre is like 10,15 or 20 kms away, it will be better to  visit and get familiar with the centre beforehand because you never know in which gully-chauraha, your centre will be. 

Damn, so in the end were you not allowed to take the exam? 😯

No bhai, mere aakho ke just saamne security ne gate ki kundi lagayi.

There were some CID officials sitting inside, near the gate, I requested them ki entry karne do they said hum kuch nahi kar sakte only the principal can.


Principal aayi, unke aagay request kari ki Ma’am ek saaal waste ho jaayega please let us in, she didn’t.


9:40 par ek ladki aayi. Her father was at a good position in Delhi Police. Unhone CBSE ke kisi higher official se school par phone karaya par fir bhi principal ne outrightly mana kar diya.


Aisa kuch tha saal 2020  -_-‘

Ek year mera waste kar diya chalo koi nahi. Mere pass attempts hai, age limit hai, plus 2020 ka attempt bhi count nahi hua.


But mere 20 minute baad ek bhaiya aye the. It was his last attempt due to age limit and he had given interview twice before.


He got late because metro vale ne beech mei metro rokk dee thi 30-45 minutes ke liye. We all know how messed up the transportation system was during that phase of pandemic. Kya pata tha ki iss baar selection utha le jaatey but voh banda enter hee nahi kar paya centre jab ki uski galti bhi nahi thi.


Principal ke strictness ke chalte uss bande ka sapna reh gaya jiske liye voh last 6-7 Saal se mehnat kar raha tha.


To be honest, Mujhe ekdum halka sa bother Kara ki mai enter nahi kar paya but Mujhe dukh kaafi hua unn bhaiya ka dekh ke. Jab sunney mei aaya ki court mei case dala hai toh hope mili ki judgement favour mei aajaye bas, but jab judgement aaya toh pooray ke pooray system se behadh niraaasha hui.


Principal ne toh chalo apni duty kari professional tareeekay se but agar voh thodi bhi considerate ho jaatin toh mujhe yeh life time ka mental scar nahi milta. Aisa kitno ke sath hua hoga koi count nahi hai. :/

For the people living in Delhi, it is anyday better to prefer metro for exam day, keep some spare time too since frequency of metro might be low. Metro also starts the services early on exam day for all the lines (since on Sundays some lines start a bit late). 

In my prior experience, more often than not I had to book the cabs atleast three times to get a driver to come to my location. Most of them outrightly ask where you want to go and then cancel the ride, some do not even bother to cancel it and do not move from their places. Not generalising but this has been my experience from early morning cabs and it is really frustrating to face this on exam day.

Metro is highly reliable in that sense. And from metro station you can easily get an auto or e-rikshaw to your exam location. Can explore cab or other means for your return journey.

Just thought to pass on one important information especially to those who are planning to reach their exam centre by metro(including me). Blue line is known for technical snag and due to which sometimes metro remain stuck. So, at least take the margin of 2 hrs if you want to travel through #DelhiMetro. Reaching early at your centre even before 2hrs isn't problematic but what if one remain stuck in metro and could not reach at centre because of Delhi metro.

Today, I witnessed this and unfortunately I'm not able to reach at my centre. So, just thought to share it with you guys.

@Falcon yes there will be problem in booking cabs specially from ORN. Believe me and book some cab before hand and in fact atleast 10 days before by spending around Rs 800 for the whole day or you will have to use metro. THe app of OLA or Uber will become almost out of your reach after 7.30 am in the morning. If you leave ORN by 7, there may not be such issues. I have seen last year students(including me) running below metro  at karol bagh with fear and  extreme uncertainity for OLA, UBER and AUTO for 40 minutes.  Fortunately, I was in luck that an uncle who lived in front of my flat helped me reach my centre with his personal car. PLease take care of this issue or go to some other nearby place. OLA/UBER does not work from 7.30am to 8.40am in the morning as the rush is extreme.

@TsarBomba @TheNotorious Thanks guys. I'll try for the cab early if I don't get it I'll just go ahead with the metro plans you guys mentioned.

Cab searching in ORN and around is a bit risky on CSE day. From past 2 years me and my friend have faced non-availability as early as 6-7 in the morning. Auto is a relief for short distance. So, as per my personal experience, would advice you to keep the metro route in hand (best and most convenient way), in case you face any difficulty in the morning (to avoid panicking).

@Falcon 

metro sahi rahega brother. 

Assuming you will board metro from Karol Bagh station, it will take you 10 minutes to reach Mandi House then Mandi House se Violet line mei Baith jaana hai jo Raja Nahar Singh jaati ho. From Mandi House, it will take 30-40 minutes approx to reach Govindpuri. Govindpuri par utar ke auto kar Lena, Govindpuri se centre 10-15 minutes mei pohch jaogay bade araaam se. 

Jis jagah centre hai na vaha dinn mei traffic rehta hai but subah ke time khaali rehta hai jo Govindpuri se Tughlakabad Vaali road hai so dikkat nahi aayegi.

 In total (10+40+15)= ek ghanta 5 minute mei you will reach centre. Metro ka kiraya lagega 50-60₹ and auto vala 50-80₹ lelega. Toh kam paise mei travel ho jayega.

Ola-Uber ke chakkar mei na hee Pado toh sahi hai uss dinn. Private taxi karaogay voh kaafi paise maangega. So I would suggest metro mei Aaana badia atlas hath mei Rakh ke, mapping revise karte huye B)

@TheNotorious what's the general trend in allowing mobile phone to exam centres in Delhi?

They usually allow you to enter the centre with phone(but not the examination hall). You can keep your phone in your bag and then all the bags will be kept in one common room or auditorium maybe.

This is what happened in 2019 at Dwarka centre. 

I will see this time how it works at Faridabad centre. I’m of the belief that it will be like Dwarka centre only as this time too the centre is a govt school.

Let me see what I can do for you. What is your Center again ? UPSC ?


(042)SARVODAYA BAL VIDYALAYA, (NEAR HOTEL CROWN PLAZA), TUGLAKABAD EXTN., NEW DELHI-110019.

I stay in ORN

@Neyawn @TsarBomba @TheNotorious Guys, I've decided to go there a night early and stay at a hotel. Don't want to take all the journey on the exam morning. 

Might not sign in during this week. Best of luck everyone

@root @Nostradamus  anyone with experience in writing exam in Delhi. Can you tell if there would be any problem with cabs on the day of exam. My centre is 22km away and the Google maps shows 1hr journey.

Centre: Sarvodaya bal vidyalaya, tughlakabad extension

With Ola Uber you should not have a problem. Those days are gone. But a lot will depend on where you live. Is it a hotspot ?

This is bad. This was not the situation around 16-17 when the cab service was relatively new. Maybe because many people were not using Ola Uber.

I just checked Red Bus and was wondering is that is the problem can people pool a whole bus instead. It may cost 200-350 rupees for the day. From ORN to Dholpur House / nearby locations.

What do people do with their cell phones once they reach the exam centre? Safe to put it in the bag and leave? I think usually there's a token system that exam centres have.
